Mountain Man Melts is new to California’s adult-use market, but by no means new to their craft. Powered by Trinity County’s Gaia Gardens, Mountain Man Melts uses sun and soil grown Cannabis to create some of the most potent and flavorful rosin we’ve ever come across. As a hash-focused farm, Gaia Gardens continues to hunt out some of the best genetics available that lend themselves to quality rosin.
Pancakes is yet another winning cultivar to come out of the Cookies camp, this one bred in collaboration with Seed Junky Genetics. The hybrid crosses Seed Junky’s wildly popular Kush Mints with Cookies’ ultra-hyped London Pound Cake, delivering a deliciously complex profile that really shines in the form of live rosin.
The jar is bursting with terps, even right out of the fridge. The intense aroma is all over the map, constantly switching from sour lemon rind to doughy sponge cake to sweet wet earth to a mild greasy-oily-fuel profile. The rosin itself is cold cured, with a wet cake icing consistency that is easy to manipulate. It boasts a notable glisten thanks to a thin sheen of terpenes that begin to sweat out anywhere near room temp.
A low-temp dab delivers a moderately expansive, full-flavored vapor that translates every nuanced element found on the nose beautifully and accurately to the palate. The effects are swift and certainly lean towards the couch-locked end of the spectrum. To say this one is heavy-handed would be an understatement – lightweights be warned, fun name aside, Pancakes has some serious kick to it.
This Pancakes live rosin is part of Mountain Man Melts first drop on California’s rec market. It’s exciting to see a brand launching with such high quality product, as it speaks to their intentions in the industry. If you’re a concentrates enthusiast, don’t sleep on trying some flavors from this outfit.
